User Review: Asolo Men's Distance
Use: rough trail, medium to long (20+ mile) day hikes
Break-in Period: minimal
Price Paid: n/a
Where have you been all my life? I have tried a few different approach shoes and trail running shoes, but this one is above and beyond all of those.
The construction is sturdy but comfortable materials that I can actually see lasting for a while. I have used them to hike long distances on very rocky terrain in Death Valley. They were great for gravelly washes, scrambles up steep loose terrain, and navigating dry falls. The grip on these shoes is great and I would have been in deep trouble without them. Some of the short climbing situations I get into while hiking can be faced with more confidence using these shoes.
They have a snug fit and a nice toe grip to help with the tricky spots. I am a size 11.5 and these fit true to size for me. I have found all the Asolo products seem to fit my feet very well though.
Head down to a retail shop and give a pair a try!
